Higgins will definitely be getting a raise to the 2.5 mil range. Lappierre will most likely get a small raise as well. This roster is worse than the Canucks current lineup and, even then, probably isn't realistic under the cap.
Then Weise walks. %5 does little to alter Tanev and Cannauton's contracts to make it relevant.
Can still be accomplished under the cap.
Higgins is not liable to receive much of a raise under the new cap; Lapierre even less so. Were it to happen we have both internal and external means of replacing them. I never said this would be the ideal scenario but merely to show plausibility there is no proverbial gun to our head in dealing Luongo.
